In brief: Careful SymptomsOnly

clues, far from whole story of what is going on.
Goiter (enlarged thyroid) driven by low iodine intake, increased TSH, antibodies which emulate TRH, etc. Levothyroxin only a molecule used at as treatment tool, may address some of the symptoms/issues but does not solve the cause. However, if the tool is working, stopping it may allow problem to recur & increase. Study & seek help worthy your trust.
